Section 136: End of designation

800.This section explains when designation comes to an end and the impact this has on support.

801.Subsection (1) lists the events which cause designation to lapse. These include where a person: (a) is granted leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom, (b) is notified by the Secretary of State or an immigration officer of a right of residence in the United Kingdom by virtue of the Community treaties, (c) leaves the United Kingdom or (d) is made the subject of a deportation order under section 5 of the Immigration Act 1971.

802.Subsection (2) makes clear that support may not be provided by virtue of section 134 after designation lapses, subject to the exceptions set out in subsections (3) and (4). Subsection (3) (Exception 1) allows that if designation lapses under subsection (1)(a) or (b), support may be provided in respect of a period which begins when the designation lapses and ends on a date determined in accordance with an order of the Secretary of State (subject to the negative resolution procedure). Subsection (4) (Exception 2) specifies that if designation lapses under subsection (1)(d), support may be provided in respect of any period during which an appeal against the deportation order may be brought, any period during which an appeal against the deportation order is pending, and after an appeal ceases to be pending, such period as the Secretary of State may specify by order (subject to the negative resolution procedure).
